Looks really nice:) 

 

I wonder if they are bringing this is a uniform UI across all their products e.g. TVs.

I quite like it - it looks like an evolved version of Windows Media Center.

I predict the Xbox One's interface will most likely look similar to this!

Huh...looks like Metro and Media Center blended into Luna.

It is interesting how it seems that both MS and Sony took cues either purposely or by accident from Windows Media Center, a product that debuted 8 years ago. 

 

 

Personally, I'm fine with both UIs.  They both so far looks rather clean and slick.  As long as both perform smoothly, I'm happy.

 

At this point though, we have seen more of the X1 UI in motion than the PS4, so I hope we get to see more of it before launch.

media center was kind of the start of the Metro (modern) UI

I would assume the color scheme as with the PS3 and PS Vita can be easily changed and they just chose to show this blue and green one as that is a super safe combination to show. 

 

I actually may be the only person who had zero issues with the current PS3 UI. Sure, the PSN Store is awful how slow it is, and the UI of the PSN Store left a little to be desired, however the actual UI of the PS3? I personally love it. It is super simple, one can change the icons and colors based on different themes. It just works, and it was also incredibly fast when the Store itself was not involved.

 

I would personally love if both companies allowed for a bit of customization of their UI's. Meaning if I am not a person who does a lot of the social related aspects, I can choose to hide or bury those features, and really just have the focus be on gaming. I know that is just wishful thinking, and both will need their areas for advertisements even if they are veiled as gaming related, but that has always been my biggest beef with the 360 UI, and it unfortunately feels like Sony is moving more towards that direction as well. I do not need "targeted advertisements" showing up on my gaming console, even if they are relevant to the games I am playing. As I said though, just wishful thinking, as they need to pay those bills somehow.
